This cover and its accompanying story have been getting a lot of play on the blogs ...
The problem is that Kevin Rose has not made $60 million from Digg. Not even close.
Where did BW get that number? The article contains these sentences: "So far, Digg is
breaking even on an estimated $3 million annually in revenues.
Nonetheless, people in the know say Digg is easily worth $200 million." Add this sentence: "Rose ... owns 30% to 40% of the company (he won't specify)." And voila! You get $60 million! (Or $80 million! Why not $80 million on the cover? Were they really trying to be conservative?)
Well, if the point was to get me to read the article, it worked.
